RS Aero UK National Championships & International Open - Paignton, Devon, UK, 28-31 May
Supported by Rooster

On Day 4 of the 2022 RS Aero UK Nationals at Paignton the stage was set for a nail biting climax to the end of the championship with points still close in each of the four fleets and all to play for. After Paella night in the marquee at the Club those still with energy hit Torquay’s late night scene and a few of the revellers were looking somewhat Frosty as they arrived at the dinghy park in the morning....

FULL REPORT, RESULTS and PHOTO LINKS

Many thanks to Rooster, Noble Marine and RS Sailing for their support of the RS Aero UK National Championship which has allowed sociable daily awards spread through the fleet.
The presence of our Class Juror David Battye and his instructive briefings and debriefings help sailors understand where the line of the rules are drawn, promoting fairer and hence more enjoyable racing for all.
Phil Jackson of Digital Sailing was on the water to catch the action with and awesome gallery of photos, check them out at; www.digitalsailing.co.uk
Thanks to everyone at Paignton Sailing Club for a fantastic championship. Their large team of volunteers showed both passion and expertise to deliver an awesome championship and the Class looks forward to returning!

ONLINE ENTRY is OPEN!

Tor Bay is one of the UK's premier Championship venues with a fantastic sailing area on the English Riviera. The bay provides shelter for safe but tactically challenging racing and has hosted many major Championships, including the Olympic Regatta 1948!

The early UK Champs in 2022 will provide an excellent build up to the RS Aero World Championships (USA) and RS Games (Weymouth) later in the summer. Four days of racing are scheduled with an option for two day entry too for the time poor. We look forward with excitement to the first RS Aero 6 Championship!

Off the water a full social programme is planned with a marquee on the harbour wall as the focus. There are plenty of local attractions to keep friends and family entertained ashore too. Paignton is a popular resort so be sure to book your accommodation early.

*Note that in 2022 the usual late May Spring Bank Holiday falls on Thurs 2nd and Fri 3rd June for the Platinum Jubilee.

Charter RS Aeros - A limited number available thanks to RS Sailing.
